Back in late 80’s, Honda CR-X is a hot thing. After two decade, now comes the 2011 Honda CR-Z.
The Wall Street Journal reported that orders for Honda’s CR-Z in Japan are 10 times higher than expected. Initially, Honda is only expecting order of 1,000 units per month in Japan, but total orders have now exceeded 10,000. 90% of orders have been placed by men, with most between 30 and 50. Half of those buyers were new to the brand, and Honda is now just 2000 vehicles away from its conservative first-year prediction of 12,000.
Around 9000 orders have been placed for the top spec CR-Z EX, which, at 2,498,000 yen, it comes with a premium sound system with subwoofer, auto on/off HID headlights and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.
Honda CR-Z will be debuts in the US and Europe in the next couple of months, Honda target to sell between 40,000 and 50,000 CR-Z models around the world each year.
Whether or not that the Honda CR-Z is coming to Malaysia, it is still remained as query at this point of time! However, I believe Honda Malaysia will be more than happy to listen what’s in our wish list in 2011. Hence, keep the feedback on.
